The course covers selected advanced topics in copyright law. Special emphasis will be put on the interaction of copyright law with various new technologies including the Internet and other digital technologies. In addition to the relevant legal doctrines, the course will survey policy considerations and the normative justifications - economic and others - that underlie these doctrines. Prior knowledge of copyright law is not required. However, students will be required to familiarize themselves with the basic elements of copyright law. Class lectures and discussion will focus on advanced applications of these elements.
